in the administration that have any sort of appetite for a war in iran. the same goes with syria. we saw with the libya entanglement, we saw sort of barack obama's doctrine. he is going to be looking for very much multinational-type force. he is going to the u.n. he is looking for the french to take a lot of the lead. he is going to be -- but nobody, even with both syria and with iran, there is no nobody particularly at the pentagon who is really wanting to do this right now. and barack obama least of all. chris: michael. >> chris, this poses problems, the perception which i think is accurate of our wearyness causes problems particularly in iran. people don't believe that this president really is willing to follow through on the use of force because they think that his head is still looking back at iraq. someone who spoke to him recently told me a few days ago that he has said about syria, words to the effect of "i know how i get in. tell me how i get out. i don't know how to get out." he is still thinking of what we got into unexpectedly in iraq, the unintended consequences of american action. it's a

the president and the prime minister. they have not been able to get on the same page to the county where president obama has really stopped talking about it. i'm not clear how much he's even going to talk about the palestinian issue on this trip. maybe indirectly but they really haven't had much of a meeting of the minds when it comes to the major core issues such as settlements, etc. then the real retrenchment from what president obama had hoped to do originally e. not to mention that netanyahu had overt public support for mitt romney during the presidential race, i'm sure that plays into the tension. this relationship, how does it shape how the two countries might be dealing with iran? >> yeah, that's an interesting question and from talking to american israeli officials this relationship endures even when there is tension between the two leaders even though it doesn't help to have that kind of daylight between them when iran is watching all these signals. that's why this trip has toot a lot with the optics visa see iran. behind the scenes there are discussions going on 37 prime minist
of same-sex marriage is up, by about the same amount. 58% now support it. only 36% oppose. once a hot button issue, politicians are reflecting this change when clinton campaigned for the presidency in 2008, like then candidate barack obama opposing marriage for gay couples. >> i'm not in favor of gay marriage. >> today, clinton invoked god as a reason for supporting same-sex marriage. >> to deny the opportunity to any of our daughters and sons soley on the basis whof they are and who they love is too deny them the chance to live up to their own god-given phone usual among republicans support for gay marriage is increasing. >> the country is moving towards greater equality and inclusion and it's encouraging to see republican party is addressing that. >> coming up at 6:00 we'll hear from the newly elected vice chair of the california republican party on changing views within the g.o.p. and whether the party is ready to accept same-sex marriage. carolyn tyler is traveling to washington, d.c. where the court will consider whether prop 8 wrongly denies gays and lesbians the right to marry.
the way. barack obama coming out for same-sex marriage in 2012 made a difference in terms of progressing some people's thinking right? this leads this avalanche of barack obama, the republicans coming out with this amicus brief, that kind of thing, leads to this highest public opinion poll we have seen so far. the constitutional law scholars say by far the most important of all of these factors at this point is public opinion. and that the court must weigh the institutional role right? of getting the constitution right, against having a reputation where the people, you know, see it as a place where justice will be done and not delivering decisions that are so far out of the main stream that then you have to, you know, send u.s. marshals out or whatever. you don't want to be in a situation like that. i'm not saying that -- of course constitutionally we want what is right to be done but the court weighs those things so public opinion does matter. by the way -- >> bill: for them to rule any other way right now -- for them to rule that -- that marriage equality is -- or t
of the republicans' second committee issuing a statement saying that president obama's ncaa bracket is a shocking failure of leadership. the house republican conference put this video on youtube equity the same complaint, how dare he? all kinds of congressional republicans went on twitter insisting that he should stop this outrage of liking sports. get off my lawn! it's march madness republican style. the annual opportunity for house republicans to turn over an old leaf they know they should not turn over any more but cannot stop themselves. also, clearly, it will be in zepa. don't tell john maynor, because he would be furious. that does it for us tonight. we will see you tomorrow night. right now it is time for the last word with lawrence o'donnell. have a great night. we now know that when the president's away, republicans will play the same budget games they play when he's here. >> the united states of america stands with the state of israel. >> obama in israel for the first time as president. >> joking with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu that it was good to get from congress. >> yo
provisions were passed under the obama administration both have the same characteristics. hester pierce talked-about the biggest issue, i believe that is true. that is the thing we have to look at most carefully. that is the area that gets the greatest danger, and i spend a lot of time on it in the book. as a foundation for crony capitalism, there is nothing better, nothing more dangerous than what has been done with the financial stability oversight council. it will now have the opportunity to declare certain non-bank financial institutions are dangers to the financial system and have to be stringently regulated. what that will mean over time as more and more of those institutions pull in to their select category that the fed will have an opportunity to control what those institutions say on all matters of public policy. if one of those institutions should suggest the administration on some issue weather is the trade issue, it will be discreet warning, and tone that down and we don't have to have this controversy. that message is the essence of crony capitalism and will be made possibl
polls that i alluded to earlier, three-quarters of obama voters said that they were for same sex marriage. three-quarters of romney voters said they were not. so there are people in the democratic party who, you know, support traditional marriage. i thought it was really interesting, by the way, this week. i thought it was politico went to a lot of the red state democratic senators on the ballot in 2014. people like mark prior of arkansas and others, mary landrieu in louisiana. they haven't changed their position. and i still think the republican party is going to remain a pro-family, pro-marriage, pro-life party. i don't think that will change. and if it does, by the way, i think the big tent will become a pup tent. if you look at the data, 44% of all the votes mitt romney got last november were from self-identified evangelicals. >> romney's data analyst suggests that republicans and independents who voted for the president who, by the way won, actually overwhelmingly support marriage equality and so this is a growing issue for republicans and independents. you know, again, i th
opinion is changing so fast. as the supreme court takes up same-sex marriage, there is a stunning swing in its acceptance. today 58% to 49% in favor. president obama changed his mind. >> our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. >> reporter: hillary clinton agreed last week. mitt romney's stand against gay marriage surely hurt him in november. >> white evangelicals form a strong part of the republican base and are overwhelmingly opposed but others supports free freedom to marry. >> marriage laws are designed to attach mothers and fathers to each other and to the children that they may create and raise in the best environment. >> reporter: despite the snow, people are camped at the supreme court to get inside for tomorrow's argument. >> i have a lot of gay friends. i don't think they should be denied the right to marry the person they love. >> chief justice roberts set aside a seat for his cousin, a lesbian, who wants theo justice to declare the ban unconstitutional. chris and sandy raised four boys and want to marry. >> we
to hillary clinton. >> yes. >> there was talk of the need for the same thing in 2008 for obama and hillary to unite. there is always an attractive quality to this sort of thing. it's a little different of course. >> yeah. look, there -- >> why is it so tough? >> ultimately never say never is the art of politics because truly anything is possible. but the concept in primaries, there's always sort of this high wire act. if we go negotiate, we will dramatically change the course. and it really doesn't happen very often. and so you find out about these sort of high wire moments when someone tried to do something like that. now, it's different when you talk about secretary clinton making the decision to go ahead and end the primaries. that was about her supporting the nominee. it wasn't about a coalition to try to propel someone else forward. and that's a big difference. but it happens on both sides. we've all been part of the conversation. >> the two candidates themselves talking face to face. usually this is the providence of pundits. >> and the act gets even higher on the wire when it's the
bank. >> reporter: dave, president obama wants israel to give palestinians their space but at the same time he didn't make any immediate demands to move out of the west bank area. in a few hours, the president will be speaking again at a dinner hosted by israel's president. about 45 minutes ago when he was speaking to a crowd of mostly young students. >> the future is bound to ours. >> [ inaudible shouting ] >> no, no. this is part of the lively debate we talked about. this is good. >> president obama wants to get peace talk started between leaders. he held a joint news conference earlier today with palestinian president. both said it is time to start direct peace talks with israel. and just yesterday, told president obama israel is committed to a two state solution. israel and palestinian leaders have not negotiated but admit compromise is needed. he says both parties deserve the same thing. >> young people can work together to make progress in three areas that will define our types. security, peace and prosperity. >> earlier today, israeli police said militants fired rockets at south
with me, they are not doing this." but we all know the democrats are doing the same thing. they are telling people lies, not telling the truth. obama, his incompetence as a president, he blames -- this is why i'm not getting things done. he's supposed to be a leader of the people. the news media let's everything go, doesn't -- you know, obama is doing a great job and everything else. the american public knows it is not true. host: jim, thank you for the call. is that tactic different from president obama, president reagan, or president bush? guest: no. all presidents do that. the one point i totally agree with is that the press generally let's presidents say what they want to say and then challenges it in a different way. i mean, you get use today a president's normal line. this president blames the republicans, that's true. ok. so what? he blames the republicans. the republicans in fact are in one house of congress, and they are not letting him get anything done. that's true. he plames them. who is listening? he hopes the public is. it doesn't necessarily resonate with th
eight years of obama, new leadership around the country that don't have the same affection for the clintons that her school or her age class does, how does she get them enthusiastic enough to face a republican opponent if they can come up with a formidable one. she has a lot to weigh. i think she can make the right decision but it's not a slam dunk decision. >> kelly, what is the sense in washington? the clintons, either president clinton or secretary of state hillary clinton have been on the scene every day there for two decades and now they are gone for a moment. what is the sense, the video av? >> i think her making this decision i think you'd see a new generation of democrats who would flood to the possibility of that first woman in the white house. i think that is something that would awaken a lot of enthusiasm and even possibly some of those sort of suburban republican women who would be open to looking at her as a possible candidate. i think reverend sharpton's point is strong about the idea that talent that was around them many of those folks have moved on to the pr

. but at the same time, i agree, for example, obama and his state of the union address recently talked about the importance of getting more technical training. because our students today really need to understand how the, what they're doing in middle 62 and high school, absolutely is linked to their future success in the job market. whether that is white collar, highly educated profession, or a more skilled technical kind of profession. >> claudia, thank you so much for that insight. >> sure. >>> up next, from the son of a gambling man to one of america's longest serving state governors, governor bob miller's lifestyle reads like the godfather but with a happy ending.

ten months, and i'm surprised at paul ryan saying the same thing. here's the thing. of course they give obama political advantage. but they also take the heat off themselves. if they said, yes, we're facing an exceed debt -- immediate debt crisis, people would demand they do something. so they're taking responsibility off their own shoulders. the runs are schizophrenic. they claim to be the fiscal conservatives and they're not. at least obama is consistent. he is a radical leftist and he acts and spend like a radical leftist. >> neil: do you think there's something more than just symbolism to these remarks and the fact it was both the speaker and the house budget chief and former vice-presidential candidate for president, saying this is tough but not immediately tough. these are the folks who voted, obviously, for the last deal that prompted taxes taxes to go. so it's a face-saving gesture as much as it is, wherever we're going from there. >> they voted for every deal. they've negotiated every deal. and so for all the talk, the fact of the matter is, obama has been to this --
're not competing the dnc, luke. we're competing with president obama's organization that is a granular community based organization that is perpetual in its nature and the fact is we have to get with it and do the same thing and try to do it even better. and so, look, if you are going to market and brand your party on a regular basis, i think you're going to continue to have problems. and that's a big piece of what we're trying to do here. >> there has been some criticism from folks within your own party regarding these ideas, the national review sort of would say the mouth piece of the professional right says the action items recommended to address these issues are heavy on committee formation and tokenism. where the report does get into policy most notably on the issue of immigration reform, the analysis is shallow and the recommendations opportunistic. this comes on the heels of some republican senators saying that immigration reform could possibly take a few years. that should be the time frame. what is your response to national review and should immigration reform be expedited? >> well, tha

in infrastructure in the same way. what do you mean? >> i think that's right. as you mentioned the obama stimulus did pour about $150 billion into our infrastructure and its build america bonds was a hidden stimulus inside the stimulus put in another $180 billion. that's a start. that's how you start to create the sort of strong infrastructure that makes people want to make our economy more competitive and make people want to invest in us. you have to ask what the goal is. it's not just to build more roads or sewers, you want to get people places. as opposed to just building roads. sometimes that involves more infrastructure, more tell commuting. sometimes smarter infrastructure. >> the goal is a good standard of living and the idea that businesses will invest and create jobs? it makes companies want to hire people. people want to live in these places and that's largely what it does. >> exactly. you want good mobility to get to work so you can get around. you want good drinking water so that you don't get sick. you want a good energy system so that the lights stay on. this is the basics that make

[applause] in 1961, my people could not board a greyhound bus. leaving washington d.c. traveling to virginia, north carolina, south carolina georgia alabama and mississippi on our way to new orleans with the probability of being arrested or jailed and that is what happened i was selected as one of the original freedom riders. we met in washington d.c. on may may 1, 1961. i was 21 years old and i was a few pounds lighter then. we went through a period of training orientation and i will never forget it. on may 3, 1961 we all went down to a chinese restaurant in washington d.c.. i had grown up in rural alabama and attended school in nashville tennessee. i never had chinese food, never been to a chinese restaurant and that night we had a wonderful meal. someone said you should eat well because this may be like the last supper. the next day on may 4, 1961 half of the group boarded a greyhound bus and the other half a trailways bus. the first incident o

to tackle the issue. steadily and remarkably, public and political support far same-sex marriage is on the rise. the shift has been under way in the courts, in congress and, most recently, among leading politicians of both parties. president obama split from opposition to support dominated headlines last year. >> at a certain point i just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that i think same-sex couples should be able to get married. >> ifill: last week, ohio's rob portman became the first senate republican to announce his support. two years ago, he said, his son told him he is gay. >> that launched an interesting process for me which was rethinking my position, talking to my pastor and other religious leaders and going through a process of, at the end, changing my position on the issue. >> ifill: republican response was muted. house speaker john boehner said his position remains the same. >> i appreciate that he's decided to change his views on this but i believe that marriage is a union of a man and a woman. >> ifill: yesterday former

. >> peter, do you see it the same way, as common ground now? >> well, i think what obama did was buy himself some time. remember, there's a lot of opposition inside the establishment to unilaterally strike anyway. the task will come if the u.s. gets close to a diplomatic deal with iran, would israel support any deal that the united states could manage to get with iran? i think that would be the real test. >> but why does it matter? if we get a deal with iran for them not to go nuclear in terms of weapon, why does it matter if israel opposes that if we accomplish our goal? >> because i think a lot of republicans in congress, frankly, would stand with netanyahu. >> our government. >> i think it would mean -- if there's going to be a deal, we would have to give on something. it will not be a complete capitulation. there will have to be and take more than time, he bought time, as peter said, but he also bought leverage. what prime minister netanyahu has been arguing and many people in the united states has been arguing and the president accepts is that in order to get iran to the position we hop
finally put his marker down. >> ej, quickly before we go, president obama does very well with the jewish vote in america. i think if he was able to speak out directly to those people, he would get a lot of applause on exactly the same lines. what i'm talking about is that self-proclaimed group in washington, in republican world. the world that tries to say chuck hagel is somehow anti israel, this kind of organized approach to the notion that there's some separation between the obama administration and israel. that was never true, and it was proven completely untrue today with this speech. >> you know, i heard an argument once between two folks who were pro israel. and one said, you know, a true friend stands with you in a fight, and the other one said, yes, that can be true. but it's also true that if you're having the same fight over and over and if you lose the fight, you might not -- you might go away. a true friend tries to stop the fight. and i think obama today was part of the -- he was that kind of true friend. and i think a lot of friends of israel want to end this conflict. >> e

these one size fits all solutions don't work. that's what we've seen with obama care and a lot of things. this is for one college and should be emulated if possible because it's working there. >> yes. and other schools can come up with other ways to do t same thing. one of the things as john touched on with the government subsidies it's bloated administrative costs which is why the sticker price for tuition is going up at four times the rate of inflation. that's got to be stopped. this is one way. bless them. you'll see more of this in the future, three years insteadf four years and more on line. the bloat is going one way or the other. >> isn't this better than another taxpayer bailout? >> i say no, don't cut off tuition lending, there isn't enough money in the system to make every dollar of financial aid take the form of a grant. it can't work that way. die like steve's idea that incentives should be realigned. i would like to see every college co-sign any dollar of any loan from the federal taxpayer. >> good luck on that. morgan, is this a good idea? >> i do. i think it's innovative.
and actually read the presidential debate with john mccain over and over again, obama promised to make a campaign speech does the same thing. i have some new proposals, but i'm going to more than offset them by other cuts and he promised a smaller government that we have great then. now when we got to the week or two after the election we start talking about the stimulus. it will be for one, maybe two years. we had a 21% increase during the first years of the obama administration over and above the solution. that dollar increase in spending adjusted for inflation is argentinian priest standing we had during world war ii, which is pretty phenomenal when you think about how much the country no place to go and fight world war ii there. this is larger for inflation. rather than the stimulus lasting for almost a couple years, not only can't we cut spending, but we can even slow the growth of spending or have a detrimental effect on the economy. obviously a shot newsome grassed a minute ago that indicated around economic growth is it going too well. the president often has made recommendatio

weaponry is of great concern to both israel and the u.s. they have not been on the same page about when they think iran might acquire that capability. these are not netanyahu and israel and obama here not the best of friends. so anything they can do to kind of ease what has been kind of four years of tension between the two would be good so they get on the same page. egypt, you know, the arab spring and the transition from dictatorship, which might have been a dictatorship, but nonetheless certainly helped in terms of the middle east balance of power because it did have a peace treaty with israel. that hasn't gone so well. we're talking about the war in syria spilling over into israel. there's no shortage of things to talk about. and i think i would also just add that presidents in second terms use a broader palette when they go after issues. they are looking at the history books. every president has tried to do something about middle east peace in particular between israel and the palestinians. i think that clock also ticks for the president. >> and how important is it for the u.s. and

obama is still very real. >> the president traveled to the west bank today. any word on what came out of his meeting with president abbas? >> reporter: well, pretty much the same thing as with the israelis. don't forget this is being portrayed as an attempt to mend faces with the israelis. it is the same thing with the palestinians. he lost the israelis four years ago in a speech in cairo. he gained the support of the palestinians in that speech because he called for a palestinian state. but so little has happened. so little has changed on the ground that he lost the support of the palestinian people. their reaction to president obama today ranged from indifference to outright hostility. he was well received in the palestinian headquarters in ramallah but outside the headquarters, you only had to go a few hundred yards and you would have found over the past few days in ramallah, almost daily demonstrations by palestinians against the president, calling him the president of the israelis. they said you're no -- the refrain among the palestinian protesters was you're no friend of the pal
for supporters of same-sex marriage, what is that going to mean for president obama's legacy on gay marriage? >> it's complicated, because the supreme court could rule any number of ways. it could be a very sweeping decision or a very narrow decision. i think the court likes to be with the times. and if the president of the united states is saying we should not be discriminating against people who want to marry somebody they love. and a majority of the country supports gay marriage, you're going to see more and more alimit of all the different parties on that. >> if the high court decides on doma, what does that mean for opponents for same-sex marriage? is that a settled issue, but is it like obama care and we'll still be talking about it years from now? >> we'll still be talking about it. let's let the states decide one at a time and that's probably the best way. public opinion is definitely shifting. maybe ten years from now, they all will be there. >> if the states decide, then we have patch work of laws where you have folks who can get married in california, but if they move to nebraska,
